Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring a laptop to the Tournament?

Yes, but there is limited seating close to electrical outlets so make sure to arrive early. We suggest you bring a portable battery charger with you so you don’t have to worry about outlet access.

What is the PIN on my Tournament Card?

When you pick up your Tournament Package, your card will be set to a ‘Change PIN’ mode. Enter the default PIN ‘1234’, and then you will be prompted to enter your own private PIN. Keep this private, but don’t forget it. If forgotten, account services will need to be contacted to reset PIN.

Are there any mandatory races to wager on?

No. There will be no mandatory races ; however, it is required that contestants must wager on a minimum of five (5) races with a minimum bet of $400/race (ex. $200 Win $200 Place, 2 horse $50 box exactor = $500). In addition, Contestants must bet half their Tournament Balance, up to Two Thousand Dollars ($2,000), in one of the last two (2) races of the Woodbine card.

Example 1: If a Contestant has a Three Thousand Dollar ($3,000) Tournament Balance with two races remaining in the Woodbine card, he/she must bet at least One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,500) in one of the last two races. Example 2: If a Contestant has a Six Thousand Dollar ($6,000) Tournament Balance going into the last two races, he/she must bet at least Two Thousand Dollars ($2,000) in one of the last two races.

I’ve placed my bet, but my Balance on the leaderboard didn’t go down due to my bet. Why?

The leaderboard will only reflect wins and losses. Once the results are official, the leaderboard will show either a drop (by the amount of your bet) due to a loss or a rise (by the amount of your winnings) due to the win.

I’ve placed my bet, watched my horse win, but the leaderboard doesn’t reflect my actual Balance or winnings. What’s wrong?

From the point that results become official, there is a 4-5 minute delay before the leaderboard is updated. If there are any concerns once results are updated, please advise the administrator on-site.

I’ve won the Tournament. How do I get my prizing?

Following a 72-hour post-Tournament audit of the winners, to ensure all requirements have been met and that all bets were within the constraints of the Tournament rules, you will be contacted by a representative of Woodbine Entertainment Group with instructions for claiming your prize.

What do I do with the balance on my card at the end of the Tournament Day?

The balance on any Tournament Cards is the property of the Contestant linked to that Account. The entire balance MUST be withdrawn at the end of the Tournament.

I forgot to withdraw the balance on my Card after the Tournament, and now I can’t even access my card. What’s wrong and how can I get my money?

The Tournament Account Cards are programmed to only work on totes set to Tournament mode. These Tournament Cards will not work on regular self-serve tote machines. To withdraw any funds on the Card, please contact 416-675-3993 or 1-888-675-7223, ext. 2513, and arrangements will be made to retrieve your funds.

Can I keep my Tournament Account Card?

We ask that you withdraw all the funds on your Tournament Account Card and return your Card to the card-collector following the Tournament for use in future Tournaments.​​
